Definitions for "Semiconservative replication"
The mode of DNA replication in which each child double helix is made up of one polynucleotide from the parent and one newly synthesized polynucleotide.
The common way in which DNA is synthesized. Each of the two partner strands in a double helix acts as a template for a new partner strand. Hence, after replication, each double helix consists of one old and one new strand.
Process of DNA replication in which the DNA helix is unwound and each strand serves as a template for the synthesis of a new complementary strand, which is linked to the old strand. Thus, one old strand is retained in each new molecule. PICTURE
